What Is Root Canal Therapy?

Get out of pain, fast.

Let’s face the facts. No one wants a root canal. But while many patients expect root canal therapy to be painful, it’s actually the fastest way to relieve your dental pain and save your tooth from extraction.

  • Reasons for Root Canal Therapy

    Root canal therapy treats severe infection that has reached the tooth nerve:

    • When a tooth is severely decayed, it becomes infected.
    • This infection can reach the root of the tooth, where the nerves are.
    • The pain associated with infection in the nerve can be excruciating.
    • Root canal therapy removes the decay, then cleans, disinfects, and seals the root canal.
    • A tooth that has undergone root canal therapy should receive a custom crown to protect and restore it to full function.
  • Does It Hurt?

    Root canals are one of the most common dental procedures, with approximately 25 million performed each year. Your endodontist at Summer Dental & Orthodontics makes sure your tooth and the area surrounding it are numb.

    While you may feel some pressure, most patients say their root canal is no more painful than getting a filling. Our team members will help you relax, and we offer dental sedation options for those who experience dental anxiety.

Benefits of Root Canal Therapy at Summer Dental & Orthodontics

At many other dentists, it may take 2-3 appointments to get a root canal and crown. At Summer Dental & Orthodontics, you’ll have both in just one visit.
